LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The county school district’s Citizens Advisory Board will consider a recommendation to allow two elementary school campuses to stay where they are.

Superintendent Jerry Guess says he’ll recommend the change during a special meeting Monday. The new plan would renovate College Station and Harris elementary schools and keep those campuses where they are.

The Harris and Scott elementary campuses are currently set to be closed and replaced with a single, new school with proceeds from a proposed property tax increase.

The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1b1Slug ) the district would keep its plan to build a new elementary school - but a smaller one - along the Interstate 440 corridor. That site would serve the Scott area and other parts of eastern Pulaski County.
